Provenance: Both images 1. and 2. were photographed in the Rebert Garden, Westminster Md. in 2006. They have not yet been vetted. Since bogus Arabi Pashas have been disseminated in this country, there is ongoing research currently being done to determine the authenticity of the Rebert AP. The last B&W image signed ‘Ansley’ is from the BIS yearbook of 1952 and was taken by Brummitt.
